    Default Prime on Desert Highway

    Hey Guys

    A friend of mine and I have challenged each other to a moment in this film.

    When Optimus does the awesome 180 on the desert highway, does anyone know if special effects were used for that or was it a really good specialized truck driver?

    Thanks

    A stunt and camera work. Believe it or not those trucks can do that. They probably sprayed the tires with a greasy liquid.

    Yeah, it's possible. Like Dev said though, they probably assisted the jack knife with something, given how front heavy it is without a trailer.

    That's what I like about Bay movies. Screeching brakes of real cars, not CG.


    And r-type, thanks for sharing a nice vid as always.

    Wow, seeing that vid r-type. makes me realize how cool optimus is the way he is and how much he would suck as a flat nose.

    I freakin love how those tires come to a total stop as prime turns direction, also happens on the freeway when he transformers, fuckin A, gonna watch it now, damn, I need to get a job....
